Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
Meet Martha! Martha is an energetic, goofy, curious, but timid Formosan Mountain Dog mix. She needs to be adopted into a home with another confident, playful, and friendly dog; and she needs an owner who loves to be active, and is also willing to be patient with her as she gains confidence and overcomes her fears.
When she came to the US, she was initially fostered as an only dog, and she didn’t move, drink, or pee for almost 3 days. She came to her current foster mom, who has other dogs, and she immediately turned into a playful, smart, happy little thing. She is a little mimic – she totally reacts to the emotions of the other dogs around her, and will do exactly what they do. Once she realized the other dogs trusted her foster mom, she learned trust, too. Now, she zooms around the house, jumps up for attention, and even pushes the other dogs out of the way!
Martha is house trained (with a doggie door), does well on leash, and (mostly) doesn’t chew up the house. (Electric blankets need to beware, though – those wires hidden inside do not stand a chance!) She rides well in the car, loves to go on walks, and does fine seeing strangers at the park. (Except for men who stand and stare at her.) She needs to have either a very long walk, or be able to run around chasing other dogs, daily. She is 30 lbs now, and probably full grown. She does chase cats, and is afraid of children. And, she will jump right over baby gates, and also onto the kitchen counters. (We’re working on that… But, she would be AWESOME at agility!)
She is being fostered in El Sobrante. Martha is waiting for her forever home, who understands that it will take patience and time for her to grow into her full confident, independent personality!
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
